This is one of Melbourne's rarest and most intact 19th Century carriage works buildings, and the last associated with Burton's Livery and Carriage business in the 19th century. It is scheduled to be destroyed for yet another tower. What a disgraceful, unconscionable and backward act for Melbourne's planning community to be involved with - let alone the City of Melbourne itself. This period is already viewed by the community as akin to the unprecedented period of destruction of Victorian buildings in the city in the 1950 and '60s. This permit should, on cultural and heritage grounds alone, be refused.
